very interesting/very boring

I was in the lab until 8 yesterday trying to get something done that will probably look like crap anyway. I got bored and ordered another set of lockpicks off the internet. $140, which is much more than I paid for the first set I got in '95 at a gun&knife show. I used to stay after school and practice on all the classroom doors and padlocks and whatnot. I had actually gained a measure of proficiency barring me only from good deadbolts and warded padlocks. I had them taken away by coppers in '96 during an embarrassing grand theft/burglary investigation.
To make an interesting story boring, I no longer have my trusty set. So thanks to the wonders of the internet, I will have a new and (very) improved set, along with warded lock keys and an extra spring-steel wrench.
I'm still anxiously awaiting a few pieces of mouth-jewelry I ordered a couple days ago, too. If I stay late again today, who knows what I may end up ordering..
